I'll try to be brief. I just moved to live with a family in a house. I set up my PC and connected to their wireless internet. Then I realized that my internet is super slow. It often takes me 4-5 tries just to completely open a webpage. It either gives me some kind of error message or doesn't load the whole page fully. I tried different browsers - still slow. I tried to shut down other programs (such as STEAM or Skype) that could eat my internet, still the same.
However, the computer in the other room that the family uses is very fast and internet always opens a webpage in the first time. So I am guessing it has something to do with my computer, etc.
Give me any ideas or suggestions or anything, because I am really frustrated when using the internet. It's slow...!

Can someone explain me the math beyond this?

How is it that it shows that ~40GB are free, when only ~20GB are used up. Where did the other 20GB went?

Alright, I just got Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit, but before doing a clean install I have a small question:
I have 3 hard drives on my computer (2 internal and 1 external). My current OS (Windows Vista) is installed on C: drive (150GB), so when I start installation of Windows 7 it will only **** C: drive and install Windows 7 on the same drive as my old OS, right? Will it give me the option to choose on which drive to install new OS or will it do it automatically?
Why I am asking this...well I am just being cautious, because I do not want the installation to **** my other two drives which have important in****ion.

Would guys suggest going 64-bit then? I do have external 1TB drive where I could save my files. Also, 64-bit Windows 7 will still run all the programs and video games just like the ones on 32-bit, right?

I currently have Windows Vista Ultimate 32-bit and I am planning to upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate.

I watched a video on cNet where it said that upgrading from Vista Ultimate to Windows 7 Ultimate does not require brand new install. It is possible just to upgrade and keep all the programs, etc. as it was before. Is that true and wpuld that work? Or would you suggest a new clean install?

Also, I have the ability to upgrade to Windows 7 64-bit. Should I do it? I am not very familiar with the differences between 32-bit and 64-bit, but I heard 64-bit is generally better.

Some of my PC specs are as follows: - Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 @2.83GHz - 6.00 GB of RAM (it's actually 8GB, but only 6GB recognizable by the OS) - nVidia GeForce GTX 260

I am using Windows Vista 32-bit OS and past several days I cannot open Windows Media Player. Once I open WMP, about 5 seconds later I get an error message that WMP has stopped working and I am forced to close it. I have no idea what happened. It used to work just fine and now I can't play music, videos, etc. on WMP. Anyone has any suggestions how to fix this issue?

What works for me a lot of times is to use virtual dub with a divx/avi plugin to rip the audio out as an mp3 file, then put it in the Adobe Premiere project below the original video file and muting the original audio,General_X
That's actually a good idea. Would you mind explaining this process in more detail?

I know there is a huge problem editing Divx videos, but there has to be a way!
I have a movie file that is in .avi format with Divx codec. I can play it perfectly, but when I import it to Adobe Premiere, the sound gets all messed up. Video works fine, but sound is messed up.
The funny thing is that when I imported that same file to Premiere while I had no additional codecs installed, then I only had audio (I couldn't play the video due to lack of codecs) and it was perfect. But as soon as I installed codecs, I got video, but audio went bad.
Any way to edit Divx video without exporting it to different format (it's ~700MB in size and it takes ages to export).
Thanks for help!

Actually, the pin was a little bent on hdd and the cable was not connected fully. Now everything works fine and you can definitely use the same cable for cd and hdd drive.
